Re: why developement is better in the Aplication platform cascades instead of native.

mainly because you have a ready-made UI and don't have to write it yourself.

there are (other) UI frameworks available for native, like QtQuick, but they don't have the same look&feel, and users will quickly get accustomed to the behavior of cascades apps.
(or html5 apps, which replicate it)

unless you want to have a totally custom UI (or none?) i see little reason not to go cascades.

  • It's a familiar look for your users.
  • It's a very handy UI framework, allows for very fast development.
  • Performance is optimized for BB10.

the great Cascades UI is the reason

Cascades allows good looking UI

I've seen some "pure-native"-classes and I never want to do write UI with C without a framework like Cascades
